Harleston has a population of around 5,000 which is significantly expanding with the projected 600 new houses to be built under the Emerging Local Plan. This is an attractive centre serving a wide hinterland of villages in South Norfolk and North Suffolk.

There is in addition a medical centre, dentist, veterinary surgeries and schooling up to GCSE level. The town benefits from free car parking on two sites centrally located.
